The use of micro-suction is the best and also the safest method of removing wax from your ears. Friel Hearing is qualified in this wax removal service in Bolton, so you will not need to go to another clinic or be referred by your GP.

Micro-suction and removing wax can be done in two different ways.

These ways are Microsuction and syringing of the ears.


Before the micro-suction takes place there is also another way of seeing where the wax is in your ear. This can take place through an examination of using video technology to locate where the wax is and if it is in need of being removed.

Microsuction is one of the easiest and safest ways of cleaning your ears. This is done by using a microscope in your ears. This then helps it to assess and also treat the ear.

Microsuction also takes place at Friel Hearing in Bolton.
